    I have 2 eggs in a home made incubator and today is day 22 so i was just about to give up, but one has broken through with a little hole and I hear cheeping inside the egg. I can see the other egg rocking back and forth. So I hope to find 2 little bantam cochin in my incubator (that is if I can get any sleep at all!!!!) I'm so eggcited!
    This is my first attempt with hatching an egg.

    I did take some pics. The chick just hatched and is still wet and icky, so I am going to wait until she is dry and fluffy and then load the hatching pics. One of the eggs didn't hatch. I decided to check it and it had stopped developing somewhere along the way??? So sad.
    Now I'm past eggcited into anxious and worried. (I have successfully raised day old chicks before, but still a little anxious that my chick is healthy).

    Updates to follow.
